It’s always interesting to us to see what cars world-class athletes drive. We’re talking about athletes who aren’t already in the automotive world though, with full-time race drivers and those involved in motorsport being exempt, we obviously expect them to have something cool or different. What about runners and cyclists and shotput champions? What kind of cars do they choose? It also depends on the calibre of the athlete in question, of course, someone who’s not yet at the top of their game might not be earning the big money or have the massive sponsors on board to allow them to buy something cool. In the higher echelons of sports, top athletes can make some pretty good money, and when those athletes achieve World Champion status things are on another level. When it comes to the cars that these athletes drive, it will usually depend on what sport they’re involved in. It makes sense that they’d choose a car that suits their sport and lifestyle, and when you’re a World Champion cyclist who competes in cyclocross and road racing, the car you choose will likely be something that will be competent on tarred roads but can be as composed off the beaten path. Cycling World Champion Mathieu van der Poel has been at the top of the game in cyclocross and when he moved over to road racing, he dominated that too. As you can already see from the pics, this World Champion chooses Lamborghini to get him from A to B when he doesn’t feel like a leg workout. A Lamborghini Urus to be exact.
Take a look at the YouTube video created by Lamborghini to pretty much show what kind of people the Lamborghini Urus appeals to. Some of these owners haven't just bought the Urus as a statement and to show off how much money they have, they actually chose the Lamborghini SUV because it compliments their lifestyle properly and is more utilitarian than showpiece: Beyond Speed: the power of adrenaline for Mathieu van der Poel | Lamborghini
